Odd minor dns issue with a server

    I've setup a secondary server in a remote location with a static IP address. Before I set it up with a static IP, I shipped to the remote location with DHCP turned on, I had one of the users turn it on for me and once I was able to RDP I changed the IP address to a static IP. However the DNS never got updated with the new static IP address even though I did an ipconfig /registerdns

    So I manually deleted the A record and re-ran the ipconfig /registerdns and that worked. Now I have an A record with the appropriate IP address. Then after a few hours, the A record went back to the old DHCP IP... I also ended up creating a reverse look up zone for that office because it was not created for some reason. Doing some more investigative work I noticed that the DHCP scope still had an active DHCP lease for that server so I removed that lease and that seems to have resolved the issue for now. Don't know if it will come back but I am pretty certain it won't.

    Did anyone else experience this? I've setup serer this way in the past many times and never had any issues.
